World Youth Skills Day

July 15 is World Youth Skills Day to highlight the need for education and preparing youth for participation in a global economy. The 2020 Theme is Skills for a Resilient Youth.

Rising youth unemployment is one of the most significant problems facing economies and societies in today’s world, for developed and developing countries alike. The latest Global Employment Trends for Youth 2020: Technology and the future of jobs shows that since 2017, there has been an upward trend in the number of youth not in employment, education or training (NEET).
